  • Very nice zoo with a good layout and selection of content animals. The location is a pleasant setting and the views are good. The animals are in a good place. The peacocks roam free and make it feel more wild. The lion show is a highlight. The animals are spaced out and the walk is good. The tree tops adventure is well worth adding to your day.
  • A lovely space. The staff are clearly passionate about their work, whether they are the admin and cafe staff or the zoo keepers, they were so friendly, helpful and eager to talk about the zoo's work. The kids loved the intimate animal experiences, such as feeding and petting the wallaroos and the farmyard. The talks given by the staff at the crocodile and lion enclosures were fascinating! The staff clearly feel strongly about educating the visitors and giving the animals a very high quality of life. Go and have a chat.
